Seeing, the Enemy of Sight

By D. Sager, published on Apr 9, 2013

...yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.” - Henry David Thoreau

He reached out, with tentative explorations, in the heavy darkness. Night and day seem the same in a world where light refuses to shine. Colors are there, regardless of illumination, and he could on occasion feel them as real as the cold chill that accompanied this new life. When the vision of the journey's end is robbed, and the consuming desire for just the next... (more)

Ghost Too Cry

By Uttam Gill, published on Jan 7, 2013

Today the silence is not same, in pitch dark of night; she steps out from her house and head towards the banyan tree at the outskirt of his village. The barren path and above the glowing sky, she walks alone in the middle of night, with that she, establishes an infallible trilogy of mysterious co-existence. To onlooker, it may appear, weird but who can be out at this hour of the night; only this woman, who is out there; piercing darkness for the reasons, known to her only. In silence, she contests the reasons of silence and that’s how every night, she walks alone, to be at that banyan tree.... (more)

Misty Is Her Way

By D. Sager, published on Oct 14, 2012

I felt light traces of her fingertips, leaving a trail of pleasure long after they found other parts of my landscape to wander. My breathing slows, mind numbs, and a creeping satisfaction, like morning mist rolling down the hillside, fills every low place of my mind. The lows of sadness, footprints of giants pocketing my memory, cupped every delicate drop of her. These lined with the nature and nurture of excruciating experience, crushed me like shells on the shore, the pounding driving me into smaller and smaller pieces. Ah, but the mist of her touch, brought healing in the haze. The troubles... (more)

Aimless

By D. Sager, published on Mar 26, 2012

In the early dawn, the dark and the bright birth

My silver cage flew open, and I wandered,

Aimless

In the cool of the morning, the placenta of night

My foundling feet find rhythm, and I wandered,

Aimless

In the heat of noon, the umbilical light a rage

My downy wings grow furious, and I wandered,

Aimless

In the dying day, the flower of life now closing

My infant dreams lay in grasses, and I wandered,

Aimless

A Valentinian Heart

By XanthusKidd, published on Feb 14, 2012

...danced with the wind. The branches creaked and a light mist clung to the bleak surroundings. Soundlessly, the passersby watched the lamps slowly extinguish as the fixtures burned through their meager ration of oil.

In the house was a man. Dressed in dark garb and prepared for a sleepless night, the man watched as the flame struggled against the thick, oppressive air. The smoke from the fire draped itself over him like a misty cloak, permeating his nightclothes and choking out the pleasant odors of the night air. The room was ill-furnished, filled only with rough-hewn, inexpensive... (more)

Outside Night

By D. Sager, published on Dec 25, 2011

I’m hiding in this darkness for so long

I don’t remember light.

I thought I would open a window and see

What’s outside night.

But on the glance of what should be hope,

I was blinded by the ray.

I never knew light would cause me To know such vivid pain. But its warmth had a touch and a Sight of what could be, I was still scared by the pain of knowing

I really wasn’t free.

The prison I was locked in is

A cage of my own design.

Only I could use a key of faith

One had left for me to find.
